49ers season report card — there is talent, just not enough

As the search continues for the next general manager and head coach of the 49ers, Jed York is the focus of 49erland. How he’ll lead the search. Whom he’ll consult. Why he may screw everything up.

Here’s the blueprint for Jed York to rebuild the 49ers

Jed York still doesn’t get it. All he had to do after firing his third head coach in three years, plus his general manager, was show humility.

49ers 2016 season grades

SANTA CLARA The 49ers lost another game, but who freaking cares, right? We all knew they would lose again, even though the Seahawks gave up in the fourth quarter and put in their backup quarterback with nine minutes left. The Niners still couldn’t beat them. So, forget this game. Let’s take a step back and […]

Why Chip Kelly’s teams don’t huddle and why that’s a mistake

Chip Kelly is not tied to the traditions of football. He is a football outsider. He acts as if football tradition is primitive and beneath him. He is enlightened and the rest of the league is trapped in the dark past. He tries to profit from rejecting particular aspects of football tradition he believes coaches […]
